I'm one of the new guys and wanted your valuble insight.
I'm a guy who loves good quality food. I love talking about food, I love cooking food and most importantly I love eating food.
Anyhow, I've never spent anytime in a professional kitchen, but I'm planning on going to culinary school in January if things go the way I want. Because of this, I sought out an opportunity in a kitchen so that I can get a head start. I'm excited to say that I found what seems like a wonderful place with well respected chefs. The Sous Chef wants me to come in and give it a go. He says if I like what I see, he'll give me an opportunity because of my desire. This totally excites me; I'm just really, really nervous. He knows I'm green and all, but I feel like I'm going to be a hindrance, i.e. nobody is going to want me in their way on a busy dinner service... Are the seasoned line cooks receptive to the new guys? What should I expect my very first day?
